About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I grew up on classic movies watching them all hours of the night.
Oh Daisy--you are such a funny one!
I have to visit the Mediterranean someday, from what I have seen and heard it is most lovely.
I am so sorry you did not get to see the movie, I actually watched 2 Robert Taylor movies this morning on YouTube and Basil was again the villain in this one as well. He plays an evil butler in Private Number, it is more than worth watching!
Basil is an excellent actor but he looks a bit intimidating to me and he is so tall! You will love him in this movie--I promise you that because I was pleasantly shocked myself when I was not drooling profusely over R.T. :-)
Well, I should finish up my post for tomorrow, I shall give you a hint: his initials are W.P., can you guess?
I hope you have a lovely, calming evening my friend..good night!
Good Morning Daisy!
All right, I shall view the autobiography, you know I watched Basil this morning in a movie entitled Crossroads, he is quite the actor! I was very impressed with his performance. He played a blackmailer to William Powell's character, if you get a chance you must see it if you have not already.
I hope you are having a lovely day today, I am off to join a Robert Taylor ning network I ran across yesterday, after I finish my Morsel Monday post of course!
Have a joyous day and do say hello to your husband, cheers my friend!
You poor soul--missing your beloved Basil, what is the world coming to? And um..you can keep the lovely autobiography of Basil, I can just imagine what I would find there! :-)
I promise I will keep you posted on my move and the home I finally move into, looking for it is quite the job but I am determined between God and me we shall find it!
Well, I am going to turn in for the night, I have been busy as a beaver working on some writings for my nephew and also on my post for tomorrow.
I hope your evening is a lovely, soothing one, cheers my friend!
I promise to keep you updated on the move. I am still (as you know) searching for THE perfect home. I know it is out there and I shall soon find it, hopefully very soon! :-)
Sundays seem to have a certain calmness about them, I believe because it is the Sabbath and it is supposed to be kept holy, I say this as I am watching, ah hem..Johnny Depp in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow! But I must say, the cinematography is gorgeous in this movie even though it is a bit wicked. :-)
But I already have Small Town Girl ready and waiting in the DVD player, I LOVE Robert Taylor, as you know.
I had to tell you that I believe it is next month on TCM Basil Rathbone is the featured star as they are showing several of his movies.
Be sure not to miss any of them. I am so sorry I missed Robert Taylor's month-the horror!
I hope you decide to stay in with a number of great movies and enjoy yourself, don't forget the popcorn with M&M's mixed in, cheers my friend.
I promise to keep in touch, it has been hectic here at home since I have returned from Chicago and Milwaukee. I have decided to move for sure and am in the process of lightening my household goods for a smoother move, not to mention I love purchasing new items for a new home. (Any reason to shop!)
But in between time I have been watching Small Town Girl (I finally found the DVD) and drooling over Robert Taylor! Some things cannot be helped and shall never change! :-)
I hope you are having a lovely weekend, cheers!
Sorry, I took an extended shopping trip with my female siblings to downtown Chicago and had a ball!
I hope you have been well and your family is well also.
I knew you would join many groups, it is so hard not to! We both love the era of Old Hollywood so much, it is a kin to taking a kid to FAO Schwartz and telling them not to wish beg for anything! :-)
I am so pleased you are enjoying the site and making new friends, that is what it is all about.
Well, I shall have to catch up on a few things I have neglected while I was away, I promise to write again soon, cheers my lovely friend!
Yes of course it is me! How are you my friend? I hope all is well in Basil land! :-)
I hope you enjoy it here at the Golden Age of Hollywood, there are quite a few groups to join with interesting information in each one.
As for the Basil Rathbone group...I am not sure but if you find it let me know and I shall join out of friendship to you! :-)
Have a lovely upcoming Fourth of July, cheers!

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]
To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
